Welcome To Cornwall – So much to offer…

Cornwall is a young, vibrant growing Town with many things to offer. The Town is located on the Trans Canada Highway, west of Charlottetown. It is bordered by the North River to the east and the West River to the south and west. Cornwall’s location along the Province’s main transportation route between the Confederation Bridge and the Capital City gives it advantages for many types of economic activity including residential development, retailing, tourism, warehousing and light manufacturing. Cornwall is located within a 30 to 90 minute drive of all major points of access to and from the Island. Check out our locator map on this site for a visual description.

In 2011, the Town of Cornwall had a population of 5,162, representing a percentage change of 10.4% from 2006. This compares to the national average growth of 5.9%.

Come and experience the warm and friendly hospitality that our Town has to offer. Cornwall has a variety of restaurants and accommodations for all visitor’s needs. If you feel like going on a scenic walk through the woods, take advantage of our groomed trail at Hyde Park. Visit our “Residents" section for more details. Cornwall also offers Trius Transit passes and tickets to Charlottetown and Stratford for your convenience.

Welcome to our Neighbourhood

Mayor and Council are pleased to announce that new “Welcome to our Neighbourhood” signs have been placed around the Town. These signs will be placed in areas where traffic speed is an ongoing concern.


The reduction of traffic speed within Town limits is a top priority. The Town of Cornwall is an active community! Council is asking that all motorists slow down on our residential streets to help make our community a safer place.

It is an honour to have been elected as your Mayor, and I look forward to working with Council and residents over the next four years to ensure our Town is a great place to live.

I invite you to take the time to view the website for more information on all that the Town has to offer. Each Department has developed an overview on what their responsibilities are, and we keep an open door policy, so please don’t hesitate to contact myself or the staff at Town Hall with any questions or concerns.


Warmest Regards,

Minerva McCourt Mayor
